Lia, Love the Spring Summit. I have been waiting on my delivery from Felt,Paper, Scissors because I ordered one of your Surebonder Hot Glue Guns. I wanted the nice fine nozzle that it has. It arrived a day or so ago and I find that I can not use it because you have 120V in America and we have 240V here in Australia. It might be worth mentioning it in your shop for others who do not have 120V. I looked into buying a transformer for it but the cost was three times what the gun cost, so not a viable option. Just thought you might like to know. Kindest regards. Kathy.
That is a very good point, Kathy. So sorry it does not work for you. I use a little inexpensive plug extension for my blowdryer and curling iron when I travel, but it might not work for this glue gun. Might be worth a try though?
Apologies if this was covered and I missed it, I’m jumping in the middle. Do we need to take notes about the steps or will there be an infographic as there are with other projects to download later?
Thanks for all this awesome content!
We will add a printable worksheet in a few days.
Excellent thank you
Does the scalloped vs the zig-zag pinking shears make a noticable difference? Can you expalin why you choose one over the other?
They do not make a huge difference, especially when you are making such a tiny fringe.
I learned to make my 1st anemone during one of your Master Classes for making crepe paper flowers and I love that one. Cannot wait to make this new version. I am a little behind.
I like both of them, but this one is a bit smaller with a few more petals. We just keep on refining! 😉
I own chalk pastels, have you ever used them for adding color? Can you discuss why the pan pastels are preferred over sticks?
Since we apply the pastels with a brush or sponge, the PanPastel is a perfect choice. If you want to use your stick pastel, be sure it is the dry version, not the oil pastels. You can scrape some of the pastels into a small dish and then pick up the color with a brush. I do not really recommend coloring directly onto the crepe paper with a stick pastel since they are a bit hard and can change the surface smoothness of the paper. However, all that being said, you can certainly do some testing and see if you can make it work. Let us know! 😉
Thanks!! I’ll give it a try
Can you tell us the pros and cons of using the Art Glitter glue over the Aleens?
The Art Glitter glue has a very fine metal point on the bottle and runs a bit thinner. This allows a very small controlled amount to be added to your spot on the petal or leaf. It also dried VERY hard since it was made for glitter. I have found this holds as well as hot glue. Aleene’s is a great glue as well, but thicker. You choose your tip size by clipping the trim on your tip.
When I cut out my anemone petals there was only 3 not 4. Also I am confused by the size of the ball for the center the one I have is very small.
Hi Sherry, the template that we provide here at this summit is a new one (see the tab on the left that says Flower & Greenery Templates). You can download this new pattern in either a PDF or SVG if you have a cutting machine. The balls that I used for this flower are 12mm which are the same size as the foam balls in the kit. Hope this helps. 🙂
